Mushrooms are 90% water. No wonder they release a lot of moisture when you cook them. Unlike plants, fungi do not need sunlight to generate energy. Mushrooms aren’t only used in cooking, but they also have many medicinal uses. However, if you come across a mushroom like this, you might want to avoid using it for anything.
In fact, run away from this mushroom as quickly as you can. From what we learned in Scout days, anything that’s red or orange in nature is most likely poisonous. And if that red or orange something is oozing out a viscous liquid, we guarantee that it’s not simple syrup.
